Boiled down, Goklany was pandering to conservatives and it got him promoted. He knew exactly what he was doing. One of the first orders of business, when a new President takes office, is to fire that son of a bitch.

Sniper, why are you so unwilling to believe humans can change the climate.
Plants made oxygen for billions of years, which allowed animals to evolve.
If plants can change the climate, why can't we change it faster?
???

It's never changed THIS FAST before.

And when it has changed in the past even slowly, a lot of plants and animals died out. Entire eco-systems changed.

How dumb do you have to be not to understand that?

Sure it has. We have had a few mass extinction level events that occurred along with significant climate change. The difference in those were things like Asteroids hitting the planet and not people to stupid to see the writing on the wall...

Climate change has happened before, but now we have the extra added human population load adding to the mix.
When climate changed before it led to mass starvation in Africa, Europe and Asia This has happened several times
With warm wet changing to cold dry conditions.
Now with 7+ billion people living on coasts and depending on food production climate change is a problem no matter
if Man caused or natural. Denying it is happening is foolish and in the long run will lead to population displacement and
more war for resources and arable land.
The argument is about money and who will pay. Same as it always was.

Climate change deniers like Pres Trump do NOT deny that global warming is occurring. They deny, like me, that the truth about the urgency & science related to global warming - one small aspect of climate change - is still very unsettled. And time and facts and debates needed to be had to clear that urgency up. It's not time to panic or over-react.

What is very clear is that the proposed "solutions" to address the global warming "crisis" (like "carbon" taxes) WILL have severe consequences for all of us, especially economically disadvantaged groups and nations. Clearly those solutions will be far MORE impactful and detrimental to us and the disadvantaged than any global warming effect will have. In this case (global warming) it is well known the cure will be worse than the disease!!!

No, it really isn't.

That's like calling the science unsettled when the Doctor says the cancer will kill you in 6-8 weeks because he isn't sure if its 6 weeks or 8 weeks and then you deciding to ignore it altogether.
